I've been hearing a lot about how good alcohol is for your health — but I always thought it was unhealthy to drink. Can you explain this?
After reports were released suggesting that alcohol has a protective effect on the heart, many people I know jumped for joy and cheered, "Finally something seemingly sinful is good for me!" In fact, a moderate amount of alcohol can be good for your heart health. Research shows that drinking any type of alcohol in moderation can lower your risk ofstroke, raise goodcholesterol(HDL) levels, and lower bad cholesterol (LDL) levels. And red wine contains antioxidants that can further protect the heart. So go ahead and enjoy your wine with dinner. To stay in balance, switch your glass of wine for your dinner roll or other starch serving.
But stay sober! Once you drink past the point of moderation (which is defined as one drink a day for women, and two for men), alcohol's benefits are quickly swallowed by its risks.
